So while this is completely normal for newborns and I'm not worried or stressed by it.... just wondering if anyone has any tips? My son did this but my daughter 7weeks is much more settled than my son so could try a few different things this time. She's getting more alert now.
If you have a newborn... Can you put them down awake? Do you let them cry? Is it too early to do this - CIO or self settle? I tried once to pat her under a mobile but she cracked it and I'm scared to try again. I think you're not supposed to push CIO/self settle until 6 months is that right? What's your experience with this?
At the moment she's keen to suckle on breast get drowsy and fall asleep in my arms. Then I put her down. Up until 3-4 days ago she would let me transfer her into bassinet and she would sleep 4 hour block over lunch.
But now wakes up immediate o r after a sleep cycle. Often Wakes with a vomit as she's refluxy. She sleeps wrapped up and slightly on her side on a baby wedge for her reflux.
She's doing really well at night can do up to 11 hour stretches. It varies. No dummy used as she doesn't cry very much and id prefer not to use one this time as it was a struggle getting it off my son.
Any ideas /opinions most welcome!!
